My post was in response to these statements:
All in all, this is to say that I don’t think a legal career at the OSC or the Competition Bureau would satisfy my yearning to “make a difference in the world.”
I’m a mature student and decided to quit my cushy, well-paying job to attend law school in order to chase this vague notion of “making a difference in the world.”
I don't know how OP defines "making a difference in the world" so perhaps they should clarify this.
Maybe redundant at this point but I ended up asking, just to be sure lol. And received this:
"Yes, it appears there was a manual error that has been corrected, my apologies for the added stress to you."
So this gives me reason to believe that UBC always takes percentage grades as is, no matter your school. If anyone reading this thread is given a GPA that's not consistent with their transcripts in this way, I'd advise shooting admissions a message.
